(CNN) — The families of two U.S. journalists detained in North Korea made public pleas for their release as their trial and the threat of years in labor camps loom.
Euna Lee has been in North Korean custody since March, when she and another reporter were detained.The women, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, are to go on trial Thursday on spying charges.
“Our families have been quiet because the situation is very sensitive and we’ve been really trying to allow diplomacy to take its course,” Lisa Ling, Laura’s sister, said on CNN’s “Larry King Live” on Monday night. “But you know, you’d have to be hiding under a rock not to see what’s going on in the Korean Peninsula.
“I mean tensions are so heated,” she continued, “and the girls are essentially in the midst of this nuclear standoff.”
